What made you decide to become a doctor?

I was exposed to medicine through a college job shadowing experience and realized that I enjoyed the mix of science and healing while interacting with patients and their families.

What conditions do you treat as an Otolaryngologist?

I treat a broad range of ear, nose and throat conditions in both adults and children. I care for patients with airway obstruction, hearing loss, masses of the head and neck, vascular anomalies, cleft lip and palate, micrognathia (small lower jaw) requiring mandibular distraction, facial paralysis, nasal obstruction or deviated septum, and reconstruction of the face due to trauma or cancer.

What is unique about receiving treatment at Tufts Children's Hospital?

Tufts Children's Hospital is a unique place to seek treatment, as each patient receives individualized care. Our pediatric ENT department is comprised of a group of dedicated and specialized physicians and health care staff that collaborate well together as a team.

We work closely with numerous specialists to treat and rehabilitate patients with complex conditions allowing for excellent results to be achieved.

What do you like to do in your free time?

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, running, skiing and traveling. I especially look forward to exploring New England, as I am new to the area. I have lived and traveled throughout Latin America, speak Spanish and participate in yearly surgical outreach trips to under served areas to treat patients with cleft lip and palate.
